A million or more starlings join together over Gretna Green.
They travel at different speeds in different directions yet never seem to collide.
An amazing sight.

Extraordinary image. The shame of it is that we know about these phenomenal displays from watching countryfile and springwatch and the like. Now the novelty has worn off a bit. I would love to see it for real. Well captured and thanks for sharing.

When I was in my teens, I concluded the simultaneous turns must be proof for telepathy.......

You have caught this so well Joan.
